              Area of Rectangles

              Students learn how to find the area of a rectangle first by counting, then repeated addition, basic multiplication and later using the formula Area = Length x Width.  As learning progresses students are challenged to consider composite rectangular shapes.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to determine the area of a rectangle by counting the squares inside.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the area of a rectangle by multiplying the length by the width
              • Some students should be able to derive the formula for the area of a rectangle.
